I do not know C development all that well. Assuming this is a valid bug and this patch is the correct way to fix it, (my interpretation of) Fedora's policy is that I should wait until upstream accepts & merges it. In that upstream bug report, Bert Wesarg (a committer) reports "Looks reasonable. Thanks.", but I haven't seen it merged yet.

If you can, please help it get merged upstream, and/or reply back here when it does.

Comment 4 Werner Hoelzl 2017-02-06 19:03:41 UTC
The patch is included in the upcoming nedit-5.7

Comment 5 Michael DePaulo 2017-02-06 20:07:51 UTC
Great, I'll issue a test update when I get a chance.

Comment 6 Werner Hoelzl 2017-02-21 08:57:37 UTC
nedit 5.7 has been released on 8-Feb-17.

Comment 7 Michael DePaulo 2017-03-13 12:50:54 UTC
I just released test updates for F24, F25 & F26, and an update for rawhide. I expect to release updates for epel6 & epel7 within a few days.

Comment 8 Michael DePaulo 2017-03-14 13:22:54 UTC
The 5.7-1 test update for epel6 is now available (along with the epel7 update):
